Indian Scout joins the Bobber revival

The “bob-job” described a style of custom motorcycle that first appeared in the 1920s, when bikes first began to be stripped of superfluous bodywork, exposing more of their tyre treads for a more minimalist and dynamic appearance. It's a style that predates the other custom themes that followed, notably the cafe racer that became popular in the 1960s in Europe, and the chopper movement that occurred at the same time on the other side of the Atlantic.
